The iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus come with the same design as the iPhone 6/6s, except that it comes with a cleaner looking back with repositioned antenna lines. The antenna lines have been moved to the top and bottom edges of the rear shell that not only helps in giving the rear of the phone a cleaner look but also helps in improving the modem’s performance due to less interference.


Both iPhones continue to feature a 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch Retina HD display with the same resolution as their predecessors. The only notable upgrade is the introduction of True Tone Display feature that was first seen on the 9.7-inch iPad Pro.

A10 Chip and RAM

The new iPhones are powered by Apple’s A10 chip. The dual-core chip offers a performance improvement of over 30% when compared to the iPhone 6s. The GPU is now also 25% faster than what is found on the A9 chip inside the iPhone 6s.
While the iPhone 7 continues to come with 2GB RAM, the iPhone 7 Plus features 3GB RAM. The additional gig of RAM will help the larger iPhone in quickly processing photos taken from its dual-12MP rear shooter.


Apple is giving the cameras on the new iPhones a major upgrade. The iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus come with a primary 12MP shooter at their rear with an f/1.9 aperture and OIS. The larger camera sensor also features slightly bigger 1.3u pixels (vs. 1.22u on the iPhone 6s) that should further help improve low-light performance. Both phones are also capable of recording videos in 4K resolution at 60fps — a first for a smartphone.
The iPhone 7 Plus sets itself apart from its smaller brother by having a secondary 12MP sensor at its rear. The sensor has a different focal length than the primary shooter which allows the iPhone 7 Plus to offer 2x optical zoom. While there are quite a few other Android smartphones in the market that come with a dual camera setup at the rear, none of them offer 2x optical zoom like the iPhone 7 Plus.


Apple is doubling the storage it offers on the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus across the board. This means that the base variant of the new iPhones come with 32GB of storage, while the 64GB and 128GB storage variants are now replaced with 128GB and 256GB variants.
